I wonder what you have for replacing  the instructions on the gcc page starting with "for file in gcc/config/{linux,i386/linux{,64}}.h". I guess there might be files mentioning ppc in gcc/config, which are not touched by the instructions in the vanilla book. I think the issue is there…

I use the standard book.  The “for” construction of section 5.5.1 was indeed one of my suspects, but, as I am not at all familiar with the internals of gcc, I didn’t explore this deeper.  I now took a look in gcc/config and there are indeed a lot of CPU types mentioned (even m68k and pdp11!) but no ppc.  My best guess is rs6000.

I remember vaguely that I had the same problem wit LFS-7.2, But I don’t remember how I went around it.  The host distribution then was Ubuntu.

A googled a while before posting this problem but didn’t find anything directly related to LFS, so I maybe overlooked some useful hints.
I’ll try your suggestion.

It is strange: my machine never segfaults, expect when building LFS and especially when compiling gcc or glibc in pass-1.  I had the same problem with earlier builds.
My G4 is a “Mirrored Drive Doors 2003”.  I like building LFS on an old Apple computer; I was a bit shocked when Apple dropped the powerpc for Intel.  I had of course to follow and there are now 2 Intel iMacs at home.  Glad that an iMac has no sticker “Intel inside” …
